The Bachelor's Olena shares the awkward situation she now constantly finds herself in.

Preparing to find love is one thing, but preparing for fame is another thing all together. And it’s something The Bachelor’s Olena Khamula admits she is struggling with.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph over the weekend, the 23-year-old makeup artist admitted that being spotted by strangers on the street is a strange, but now all too familiar experience.

“I don’t feel famous,” the show favourite admitted, admitting, “I sometimes catch people looking at me and I think, ‘Do I have something on my face?'”

Having been backed as a crowd favourite since the show first aired last month, Khamula shared her second one-on-one date with Richie Strahan last week, with the rope access technician telling her, "the moment I saw you, I wanted to kiss you."


The admission came after Khamula told him, "I do like you in many ways. You have, you know, amazing qualities about you, and I am putting myself out there."

Despite her young age, career-driven Khamula says she is ready to settle down, explaining, " was travelling around the world for three years for work until a few months back, when I opened my own business here in Australia. I've always wanted to accomplish my dreams first and then settle down with someone I can share my life with."

Whether or not it will be the banana loving Perth native, we're yet to find out.
